WEATHER ALERT DAY UPDATE: Cold sets in, road conditions slow to improve

Tuesday 6AM Update:

Roads are still in poor shape, but we could be throwing a wrench into the road treatment plans this morning in some of our western counties. Clouds are streaming in, and it looks like we could be cold enough at the surface to essentially pull some of that cloud cover down, creating freezing fog. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued until 10:00 this morning.

Roads look to slowly improve throughout the afternoon, as we add some sunshine to the mix, but temperatures will struggle to get above the freezing mark, so we'll see some slick spots redevelop overnight.

Monday 9PM Update:

Snow is coming to an end before midnight, but roads are still in poor shape and several schools, including Columbia and Jefferson City, are either delayed or closed Tuesday. For a complete list of closings, click here:

Road impacts are still expected into Tuesday morning with temperatures falling into the teens overnight. Wind chills will be in the single digits, making it tough to be outside for more than a few minutes. With new snowfall Monday night, road crews will have to clear that and put new treatment down, meaning there will still be several slick spots. Side roads and even some city streets will likely not be plowed or treated in time for the morning commute.

Much of mid-Missouri will fall into the teens, with steady a steady north wind. Feels like temperatures out the door Tuesday morning will be in the single digits and below zero in some spots.

Low lying areas may see wind chills dip below zero Wednesday morning.

Bundle up as you're headed out the door Tuesday morning. As mentioned, additional slick spots are also likely, especially on untreated surfaces. Give yourself extra time in the morning.
